Help with bezel

I have a 72 Land yacht. it was gutted when I got it and now I've put it back the way I want. Converted to LED inside nice wood etc. Did not put an oven in but made good use of space. How do I remove the tail light bezel so I can replace the canisters with new one? Also anyone know someone to polish. I live in the Miami area. thanks for your help

The repair manual would have you protect the shell, slide a thin putty knife down behind the bezel and knock the cast mountings pins off. Reassembly is by drilling holes in the recess around the bezel and securing with blue painted rivets.
That being said I was able to remove and recondition the light cans and sockets without removing the bezel.
I believe there are some threads on replacing the cans with LED ones. You will loose the fiber optic indicator however.

Good Luck,
Tom
